I cannot get my model to model an electric water heater? Is there an option I am missing to change?

Electric Water heaters are not currently enabled in Green Building Studio. If you are familiar with eQUEST or EnergyPlus you can download the files from the GBS project and analyze them with those tools.

Jeez.  Put that on a list of "inputs we ought to be able to control".  I don't understand why this program is so limited.  It's kind of embarassing.  I mean I can't show any of these results to my clients, because I can't input what they'd actually be using in their homes.  This is science not horseshoes.
